Headteacher’s Welcome

Newhall Primary Academy and Nursery is a new build in the Newhall housing development in Harlow, Essex. Both nursery and primary settings are popular and over-subscribed.

Our lovely 56-place nursery setting (6months to 4 years) is well-resourced with caring, highly trained staff, including Early Years specialist teachers and leaders who ensure that our youngest children are safe and happy and that their development needs are supported, celebrated and challenged.  The nursery offers full daycare places as well as funded term-time only sessions.

At present our 420-place primary school has Reception to Year 3 pupils and we will continue to grow year-on-year until we reach full capacity in 2024.

Our school and nursery are situated on vast grounds, incorporating sports fields, games courts and play areas. Both settings offer light and spacious nursery rooms and classrooms. The primary building also has a fully equipped Design and Technology kitchen for pupil use, a beautiful library, outbreak areas for interventions, a large hall for assemblies and performances as well as a music and drama room.

Our staff and governors have an excellent work ethic and are ambitious for our eager-to-learn children. We have high expectations and with support from experienced leaders who are passionate about exceptional learning opportunities, we are able to provide high quality professional development for all who work here.

At Newhall we offer an exciting and challenging curriculum which is designed to engage and motivate our pupils. We tap into their natural inquisitiveness and through the implementation of Visible Learning and Growth Mindset concepts we implement varying teaching styles and learning opportunities in every subject so that all of our children access the curriculum equally and to the best of their ability. Our pupils are provided with extra-curricular opportunities which supports their interests and develops their talents.

Underpinning our focus on academic achievement is our relentless drive to ensure the safety and personal development of every child. We want them to thrive whilst they are with us so that they leave their primary school well-rounded and with good memories – happy and confident citizens with a thirst for knowledge and a dogged determination to achieve their dreams.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website.

I look forward to meeting you and showing you what a fantastic place of learning Newhall is.
